This was at Pine Neck Sanctuary in East Quogue... The one opened area in the 70 some acres...

Across from the plaque was this cool homemade bench.. The support logs were nailed or screwed together.. It was very stable to sit on...

That's a cool idea using gourds. I've always loved the purple martin houses. Some fantastic mosquito eaters!

Cool. can never have enough mosquito eaters..😊

Very nice idea!! I have to find some gourds!!



Whoa! You even have some kind of birdwatching park, which is great. Unfortunately, we don't have that.

A regular natural park... just gave it a catchy title...😃
